Stuart and wife Carol, two step-children, Dawn Moose and husband Glen, and Nick Greene. She had six grandchildren that she adored; Justin Stuart and wife Olivia, Jordan Stuart and wife Lauren, Emily Stuart Franklin and husband Garrison, Christina Stuart, Miranda Stuart Miller and husband Jordon and Garrett Icard. She also had seven great grandchildren that she was so proud of: Hailey, Jackson, Lainey, Benjamin and Logan Stuart, and Sophie and Emma Miller. She also leaves behind one special sister, Reda Elliott of Ashe County.

Remember making dresses for Carolyn's and Ken's wedding. Seems like a long time ago, but it was just a blink of an eye! My condolences to Ken and all of the family.

Carolyn was a long time friend of mine and I loved her dearly. She had a wonderful sense of humor and we laughed a lot when we were together. She was a special lady and will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her. I will remember her fondly always. I want to wish Ken and the rest of the family my sincerest condolences. She is at peace and resting now in God's arms. Becky Johnson
